Shoelaces Are Hard

And Other Thoughtful Scribbles

A new collection of humorous and moving tales from master storyteller Mike McCardell.

Book Description

Mike McCardell’s instinct for finding the perfect story at just the right time has led him to a lifetime of great scoops and gripping tales as an author and Vancouver news icon. Years of chasing and reporting human-interest stories have honed his ability to see the deeper meaning behind the everyday, and to capture the universal and familiar in even the strangest and most outlandish events. With this open-hearted approach, McCardell has become a master of weaving stories that are uplifting, compassionate and full of his signature brand of humour.

It is no wonder then that so many of the stories from his bestselling books have become old favourites, to be reread and enjoyed over and over again. In Shoelaces Are Hard, McCardell delivers brand-new stories in his classic format, to join other much-loved titles like Unlikely Love StoriesThe Blue Flames That Keep Us Warm and Everything Works on the shelf. With a fresh batch of quirky and inspiring tales, Shoelaces Are Hard is sure to quickly become a new favourite.
